Dragging an application to the second monitor causes it to crash. Why?

Dragging an application to the second monitor causes it to crash. Why?

I have a kick-ass Vista system, 64-bits version with 12 GB of RAM and lots of disk space. And it has two monitors. And I have a Hauppauge WinTV card combined with their WinTV application, which I can use to watch TV. Since one of the monitors I have also have a TV antenna and sound, I don't really use this TV thingie often so the fact that this application is a bit unstable doesn't really bother me. (It's just useful when I want to record something.)

"I have experienced similar issues with VLC, swapping monitors while it's playing causes the image to vanish, but it recovers after a few seconds. I assume it's the recovering part WinTV is struggling with ;)

Can you get it to stop displaying the video?"

"It could be either a bug in the graphics driver or the TV viewing program.

I would advise you upgrade both to the newest, but it really isn't possible for us to tell you.

The only other thing I can really say is to look in the event log and see if you can pull out any ""faulting application"" messages and look at the ""faulting module"" to see what caused the problem."
